The Circular Economy
Last week Stakeholder Engagement Manager Brendon Steele participated in the Ellen McArthur Foundation‘s second acceleration workshop, held in Amsterdam to bring together the world’s top businesses, local governments, and academics to catalyze the transition from a linear “take-make-dispose” to a circular closed-loop economy. Brendon spoke on some of the challenges and opportunities for enabling circularity in the American economy. You can view his presentation here.
